windows 2008 AD restore
Posted on 2014-11-03
Have a question regarding a domain contorller rebuild, hope expert our there will suggest me the best solution.
We have physical servers for DC, but one day the physical servers are going to die. My intenetion is to convert the DC backup to vm in the event of hardware failure so We will have our DC as VM temporaraly.
Later fix the DC hardware and turn the DC on back.
Here is my problem.
The VM is sysnching with other DC and will have replication up to date.
I am going to turn the vm off and put the physical server back, this physical server has old AD info.
What will happen when I turn the physical DC after few days? Do i have to do anything?
